Fresh Sheet: September 20th, 2017

This week's Fresh Sheet is up!  

Join us WEDNESDAY in the Terwillegar Recreation Center parking lot from 4-7:30 pm.

As fall slowly turns to winter, this week is a great chance to stop by, get some exercise & fresh air, and to shop around the warm, fresh foods at the market. The market is full of cozy vendors; from food trucks to popcorn to baked goods to curries.  We have the perfect fix for a chilly fall evening! With school back, the market provides a great escape to have a fun dinner out, with fresh and local foods for your family.   A reminder that next week is our harvest week, where we are supporting the Edmonton Food Bank in the Community Tent. Remember to bring or buy fresh fruit and veggies for Edmonton's Food Bank. 

Join us here on the Fresh Sheet every Tuesday to see what's fresh and happening at your favourite farmers' market! Remember, please leave Fido at home- no dogs are allowed where food is being served!

This week in the Community Tent we will have Dogs with Wings visiting. They are a leader in the international community of assistance dog training schools. Their mission is to foster integration and independence for Albertans with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs and aftercare.
